Nostalgia often rules the roost at Novomatic and here’s another one of their releases that bring back memories of nostalgic slot games. It may be a rather basic looking game but with some features seen in the most recent online slots, it’s still an entertaining game to play and with the chance to get some big wins so it’s definitely well worth a play.
‘Ultra Sevens’ has five reels, rather than the usual three that were played in days gone by. There are 40 pay-lines in this game which is about 39 more than a lot of the fruit machines had in the past. Usually these retro games don’t have so many pay-lines so this is a real bonus for players. The retro feel does return with the amusement arcade style soundtrack that the game possesses. It is one that’s used for a fair number of their games and a bit annoying after a while, thankfully it can be muted.
Those 40 pay-lines are a fixed amount so the only work needed before you play this slot is to work out your stake for each spin of the reels. Simply use the plus and minus buttons below the reels to set your desired stake. The minimum cost of playing this slot is 0. And the maximum bet you can wager is 80. It’s best that you wager an amount that won’t cause any problems if you were to lose it.
As if often the case with this type of game it’s fruit that dominate the reels and they are quite large really dominating the screen. The symbols are in 2D so don’t expect the sophisticated 3D graphics that you may well be used to playing on more sophistically designed slot games. Those fruity symbols are the usual suspects of lemons, oranges, watermelons, and cherries. We also get the red 7s. it’s that symbol which you will be wanting to see plenty of as it will see you cash-out a maximum 20,000 coins if you can manage to get five of them end up on a pay-line.
This game can be played at several online casinos and has three progressive jackpots you can win. To get them you need to cover all 20 of the spots on the reels with the same symbol. If it’s the low paying fruit symbols that manage that you win the lesser of the three jackpots. The middle ranking progressive jackpot is won if it’s the watermelons or grapes that fill up the reels. The highest progressive jackpot is won if all the reels are filled with red 7s symbols. Just how high each of the progressive jackpots are can be seen in the box above the reels.
There’s no bonus game in ‘Ultra Sevens’ but there’s the chance to increase the size of your wins by taking on the gamble feature. This is a risky adventure and if you make a mistake all your win is lost so bear that in mind and try to keep wins safe. The chance to play this appears once you get a winning combination, though not if you have just managed to be lucky enough to cash-out a progressive jackpot. If you do feel in a gambling mood then for a change there’s not a playing card in sight. Instead, we get a set of steps with the bottom one flashing away. Hit the gamble button which is underneath the reels and if the step stays lit then you have doubled your win and there’s the chance to do it all over again but with all that win at risk.
No one wants any surprises when playing with real cash, so it’s advisable to find out as much as you can about any slot that you play. To do that, you just need to have a good look through the paytable which is packed to the hilt with details about how the game runs and how you can get your hand on the progressive jackpots. Then have some free Ultra Sevens slot games to see just how everything works once those reels start spinning.
That red 7 plays a prominent role in this online slot with software by Novomatic and there are several other games out there in which it also holds great importance. There’s another Novomatic slot ‘Golden Sevens’ which also sees fruit and the red 7 as its dominant symbols It only has 20 pay-lines but also offers its players a gamble feature and a progressive jackpot to try and get your hands on. If it’s progressive jackpots that you love chasing, try your luck on the Novomatic slot ‘Jackpot Crown.’ Only five pay-lines there but plenty of fruit again and a single progressive jackpot to be won plus a gamble feature rather than free spins.
What looks like just another tribute to the old-style pokies is a bit more than that. The ‘Ultra Sevens’ video slot adds a progressive jackpot and a risky gamble feature to its repertoire and that makes this a game that you should be trying your luck on as there are some great wins to be had.
